Early on in the recruiting process it appeared as if Florida State was the top team to beat, and while I believed that to be true, that is not the case today. Over the last several weeks it has been Ohio State and Florida for the most part. When the story surfaced from Lamarcus Joyner about his top two schools, various media outlets called Joyner nonstop and were able to get him to retract his previous statement so to speak about his top two schools. At that time Joyner then said he was still looking at Florida State.
Florida State is in the middle of coaching changes and it has given them a boost of energy in the recruiting game landing several players not only from this year's class but the class of 2011 as well. Can the Seminoles keep it going and get back in the game with Joyner? I would imagine they could but I still believe that Joyner like Jamaal Berry from last year is Ohio State bound.
He has said it's Ohio State and Florida for the better part of the last few months to people close to him but I think Florida is nothing more than a hat on the table at this time. As is the case with all recruits now is the time for the in-home visits and now is the time when the Florida coaches will get a better read and understanding for where they are in this process.
